Dog Breed Guides - H and I
H and I get to join forces on this page. From the Harrier to the Italian Greyhound.
The Harrier dog looks exactly like a small English Foxhound, except that he doesn't chase foxes. He chases rabbits and hares, and so is called the Harrier. He is similar to the Beagle in personality. Be prepared to give the Harrier lots of exercise.
The Havanese is a sturdy, short-legged small dog with a soft profuse, untrimmed coat. His plumed tail is carried curled over his back.
Ibizans are strong and healthy dogs. They are fast, and they can jump fences from a standing position. They are adaptable and affectionate family pets. Their coats are red, white, or some red-and-white combination.
Irish Setters are a very social breed that usually will interact with unfamiliar people or animals. As long as both children and Irish Setter are supervised, these two get along great.
The Irish Terrier is a loyal and friendly dog. This dog can't be beat as an overall pal. He'll hardily adapt to any situation, which proves his deep loyalty to his owner.
Irish Water Spaniel
The Irish Water Spaniel loves people and becomes deeply attached to his family. He is cautious around strangers. Because of his size and devotion to the family, he makes an impressive watchdog.
Easygoing and reliable, the Irish Wolfhound responds well to obedience training. Due to its size, this breed does best in the country where he has room to stretch out.
The Italian Greyhound breed gets along very well with other animals. It is at home cuddling on the couch as it is running in a field or walking quietly by your side. In addition, this dog requires little exercise or trimming, and sheds very little.
